The Harris Birthright Research Centre for Fetal Medicine was set up in 1984 through the generosity of Sir Philip Harris and the charity organisation Birthright. It has developed into a major research and clinical unit for fetal diagnosis and therapy. Each year more than 10,000 patients benefit from its services and up to 100 doctors, midwives and scientists visit to observe its clinical activities and to participate in research. More than 400 papers have been published in scientific journals.

The research of the centre is not financed by the National Health Service. We thank the many friends and patients whose donations have made many of our Research Projects possible.

Information relating to a number of fetal conditions and procedures used to diagnose and treat them may be found using the links on this page.
